Teaching since:


My name is Dave,

In my day job, I run a cybersecurity company and we do analysis of organizations and report on how compliant they are on various regulations and standards related to privacy and data management. I also do a lot of research in collaboration with universities and have been part of the writing of over 150 research papers on cyber security, some of them are published publicly and available.

I spend most of my time actually developing educational materials or running educational workshops on cybersecurity so education is natural for me.

I have a Bachelor of Commerce from Algonquin College / Athabasca University. I also have completed many training programs related to information technology and have worked in the IT field for thirty years. I have also studied philosophy, math and music.

I am familiar with networks, computers, servers, gaming and general software configuration, troubleshooting and best practices.

I have a strong background with the MS-Office suite, in particular with implementing special solutions involving the VBA back end that every office app has.

I have created and run educational seminars regarding cybersecurity and have worked with students of varying skill and experience levels to reach specific educational milestones.

Currently I am working on a large project with a post secondary institution to deliver some of our research as course materials to a large number of students.

Finally, I (and you too if you got to this point) have a lot of patience and will adjust my approach based on the person and situation sot hat we can communicate effectively and move forward with the educational goals at hand.
